In fact, it's been a while since I've played, but would there be any reason that the defender would need to be "online" to defend? Couldn't the app just roll the dice for whoever is attacked?
I suppose that is true.

The defender always wants to roll as many dice as possible. Cards can only be played at the beginning of a turn, I believe, unless you eliminate a player over the course of your turn and have more than five cards.

Just to be pedantic, apart from the beginning of the turn, one can 'play' a set of cards if one gains any additional cards from any another player during that turn (by eliminating them from the board). If one has five or more cards due to eliminating another player, that person MUST turn in a set immediately at that time (to prevent getting a sixth card at the end of the turn, which is totally against the rules).

Not to mention punishable by drunken heckling.

I've registered and joined the game for a test to see how it works.

That's my online-game moniker and the main character of my novel should I ever get it onto paper (or wordprocessor, anyway).

By the way, the game is pretty boring so far. Where's Dominick?

We all have to be online simultaneously to play ?
That'll never work.
